Do You Need a House Call? No Waiting Room Necessary

This is a sponsored post but as always, the opinions I share are my own.  

The Modern Day House Call aka Get Help While Still in Your Jammies

Tonight is not your average weekday night.  The kids went to bed on time and you are all tucked in with time to spare.  You are almost too excited thinking about getting a full night’s sleep.  You can see it now, visions of being well rested and having time for a workout in the morning.  If you aren’t careful the excitement could keep you awake but you are so tired and your pillow is feeling so comfortable that sweet sleep is on its way.  But then, your bedroom door opens and your little one approaches your bed.  He looks a little flushed and then, he says, “Mommy, I don’t feel good”.

Do you need a house call?

 The doctor’s office won’t be open for at least another 12 hours and you really want some relief for your little one.  What are you going to do?

You know that the night is going to drag.  The wait for the light of day and someone who will answer your call and squeeze in your son (or daughter) for an appointment is going to seem like forever.  Even when you get through the night the real fun is only starting because once you get an appointment you have to bundle up your little one, take them to the doctor’s office and then wait, and wait, and wait to see the doctor.

Has this ever happened to you? It has to me but thankfully there is a better answer to family healthcare.  You can have face-to-face access through the camera on your smartphone, tablet or computer and no appointment is needed.

 A few years ago I had poison ivy so severely that my eyes were swollen shut.  I was the only driver in my household and a visit to an urgent care facility or even my family physician wasn’t possible.  Guthrie Now would have been an amazing option that could have provided me much-needed relief of my out of control symptoms.  If only they were around then but they are now.  As a reader of Cupcakes and Crinoline you can get ONE VISIT for free (a $49.00 value) by using the code:  GuthrieNowCC

    Absolutely - I threw out my back one time and could barely make it to the urgent care center. It took all I had and I hobbled in there. I'm sure it was dangerous for me to drive. . . I should have called the ambulance but I didn't want to spend the money! :0 This is genius!

      Oh, no! I had that happen with my back once as well. It was horrible. I hope yours is good now. 🙂
